Seen on Craigslist in California  "Poor man's F-16", he says.  🙂  $32K   https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/avo/d/carlsbad-long-ez-rutan-designed/7503853343.html

I thought climb props weren't good for "long distance at high speed". 🤔 😀

I don't recognize the prop but it does not look like one from Hertzler or Catto.  Yeah, a fixed-pitch prop is usually carved for one or the other--either takeoff/climb or cruise but it could be something in-between.  Those tips are very wide.  They will be draggy.  If they are tapered it will give more RPM.  Hertzler (now Persson), Catto, Whirlwind (pic) all build tapered tips these days.

Traded a few emails with Mr.  "Poor man's F-16",

Either the guy is letting his past bad experience with Craigslist help him make strange decisions or something else is off.

He refuses to even give the N number unless you show up in person.

He said;

"No damage, Rutan canard, don't have the build logs but do have the fly-off certification and everything else. Builder is local and may have that info but only serious and in person buyer's will view the N # and log information. Thanks for your interest and let me know if you want to schedule a viewing "

"Only buyers that show up in person or send a representative will be considered "

Might be a good buy for someone who is local.   Seller has foolishly and severely limited his market.  (and probably his final sales price)

Ok so we saw this thing in person, Considered buying it, then bought another. 

We didn't really see anything “wrong” with it I guess. For the money it just didn't add up. Engine on it has like 1600 hours smoh, everything is manual. No niceties at all. 
 

Also what was weird to us is that the guy wouldn't fly it. He refused to fly it himself. Flew in the back seat of it 2x but wouldn't fly it himself. What doesn't he trust about it?

Sounds squirrelly.    Also, I wonder why the log book photo and the headrest data plate says it was built by James/Jim Martin but the FAA registry has it built by one Joel H. Dembinsky?   (pic)  Flightaware lists Martin as a Trustee.  Last flight Nov '21 (pic).   I don't get it.  The FAA's registry is current, I imagine.   At least the seller apparently has good title.  Sounds like the current owner was afraid to fly such a super-high performance airplane.  🙂

Here's my guess (Yes, I have a suspicious mind).  The only Joel H. Dembinsky I see is a lawyer.  He sells it to Martin but tells Martin he has to change the log and data plate to show Martin as the builder so he won't be liable for it.  However, the FAA won't let them change the manufacturer.  Martin disposes of the aircraft to White.  White flies in the back seat and decides "too fast for me".   The business about "Seller won't tell anybody the N-number" is so you won't look up the Registry and start asking questions.    I should write a crime novel.  😉

Then only concern would be if you went to sell it what kind of "efforts" you may have to go thru!   

Some people are paranoid about liability--would rather donate their airplanes to a museum and take a tax deduction rather than sell it, even though the liability of an original builder is mostly imaginary and those museum airplanes sometime fly again.  

Quote

(and a ramp check might be a bit longer with a plate not matching FAA records...)

A data plate on the headrest should not mean anything for this airplane, mfg'd 2001 (A/W date),  it is the external one that should match the FAA records per FAR 45.11.  However, it would be interesting to find out if the the external FAR 45.11-dataplate is still there and if it matches the FAA record.  If the original builder/owner removed it and sold it with the bogus headrest plate, that sounds like fraud to me.    https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/14/45.11

Today:  Seems a little pricey but with every RV going for the same or more, maybe not.

Err, am I looking at this wrong or are the control stick and throttle reversed from normal single place cockpit locations?

The owner of that plane (which I have flown and in which I designed the mounting system for the BRS parachute) wanted the stick on the left, so that's how it was modified.

This one just relisted on B-stormers.   First seen listed at $9,800 a few weeks ago where seller said "no low balls."   Low-ballers apparently made their point.    🙂   https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=84806    Could be OK but needs a lot of spiffing.  Wings look mostly OK.  One minor ding at the winglet.  Probably a fair price but a lot of work there.

LONG EZ PROJECT NO ENGINE • $7,200 • OR BEST OFFER! • This is a complete aircraft less engine. The owner passed. It's 650 airframe time according to the Hobbs meter. It needs one small repair (hangar/transport rash) & a going thu (replace instruments clean control connections etc) It sat outside for a few years. The canopy is in great shape. Had an O-320 E3D,E2D will also work. I have the logs in the documents section. I also have a bill of sale from the estate. Reasonable offers considered. No low balls. You'll have to haul it. It will fit on a 16ft trailer, but the width is 9'-2" so a wide load banner would be needed (8'-6" is max) • Contact Eric Broadwell , Owner - located Woodstock, GA 30188 United States Telephone: 678-520-7337 • Posted August 8, 2022

This Berkut looks little odd. It doesn’t look like a regular Berkut. The nose looks odd and the rear canopy is odd looking. Is this a single seat version. And the control stick is on the left which is really strange. Most people feel more comfortable having the control stick in their right hand and throttle lever in the left hand. The interior looks really worn out. There is no way I would pay $250,000 for this Berkut. Not even close. It would require another 100,000 to make it look right.
